Need for Speed: The Run is a racing video game, the 18th title in the Need for Speed franchise. The gameplay is fairly similar to Hot Pursuit. Players race down freeways until they meet a police car. The officer will then try to chase them down and wreck their car. They will also encounter other objectives such as a straight-up race. There is another mode where players duel a rival. They can also race to toll booths that double as checkpoints.

No Car Reflections[edit]

All reflectivity on the cars is broken. See issue 8072. Fixed by 4.0-5225.

Heads Up Displays[edit]

Some textures (HUDs) are not displayed with Direct3d9. Fixed by the removal of D3D9 in 4.0-155.
